For quite some time now I keep getting emails from people who claim to be these SEO specialists, telling me I can get ranked better by using their help.
One has to figure out that they found me somehow, I would have to guess they found me in a search, right? So why would I need them?
What is an SEO specialist?
You see for the last few years I have been blogging and for my stuff to get seen it is either advertised, word of mouth or found within the search results online so, why would I need someone’s help to do what I am already doing for myself?
I can see their purpose though. Maybe for companies or people who do not wish or know how to publish their content in a way that is searchable online.
For those that do not know what SEO is or what it stands for it is this:
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s unpaid results – often referred to as “natural,” “organic,” or “earned” results.
So, one would think if I am already showing up in the search results, why would I need their services?
Now, I am not putting these people down in the least bit. It is quite the trick to show up in the first page of Google or Bing or any other search results.
But what I don’t understand is…
SEO Specialists – Why Do They Keep Bothering Me?
I mean really. If you found me and sent me a message or even been following me for some time, wouldn’t you think that maybe I don’t need any help?
Maybe I want to learn this on my own. Maybe I need to struggle with it. After all, that is the fun part of learning how to blog; creating good content and SEO’ing your content for the maximum of people to see what your message to the world is.
You see, I don’t write these people back or even comment because I don’t want to come across as rude or even condescending but in the end of it all, I enjoy what I do online and love to see my results whether good or bad. This is how we learn the best.
So, why do they keep bothering me? Well, I guess they feel like maybe I am not getting it or maybe they have not gone far enough down into the search for what I have been posting. Either way, I wish they would stop. LOL
